Facebook and Instagram appear to be partially down for some users around the world today. While you can open both platforms and some services appear to have been restored, users are reporting issues with sending messages on Messenger, posting to the feed on all Facebook products, and accessing other features on Facebook.com, Instagram, and WhatsApp. Even Facebook-owned Oculus VR is experiencing issues related to the outage.

It's Not Just You, Facebook Is Having Issues If you're having trouble connecting to Messenger or scrolling your usual Facebook-powered social feeds this morning, you're not the only one. Things started breaking earlier this morning, with Facebook notifying users through Twitter that "some people are currently having trouble accessing the Facebook family of apps".
